Migraine headaches can be debilitating and have a significant impact on your quality of life. If you suffer from chronic migraines and you’re looking for a solution, then consider seeing a chiropractor for treatment. Chiropractic care can address migraine headaches in several ways.
Your chiropractor can employ a variety of techniques to address pain symptoms, and one commonly used therapy is chiropractic manipulation. When the joints of your spine are out of alignment, this can result in a wide range of negative effects on the body. Chiropractors use carefully and specifically directed pressure to realign joints of the spine to restore them to their proper position. Some patients find that undergoing chiropractic manipulation to realign their spine can provide them with relief from headaches and can be an effective migraine treatment.
Many types of headaches, including migraines, can be resolved through Active Release Techniques®, often referred to as ART. Migraine headache sufferers typically experience neck stiffness and pain in addition to their head pain. These neck issues can be the result of repetitive strain, trauma, whiplash, bad posture, and poor sleep positions, and many chronic or ongoing headaches can be associated with physical restrictions affecting the tendons, connective tissues, ligaments, and muscles of the neck. ART is a patented, soft-tissue system that can help alleviate these restrictions and provide many individuals with relief from their headaches, making it an excellent option for migraine treatment.
The Graston Technique® is another patented soft-tissue therapy that uses instrument-assisted mobilization of soft tissues to help restore normal function to areas of the body. This technique helps stretch connective tissues and muscle fibers and increase blood flow to and from the area and can be effective for treating trigger points, knotted muscles, and scar tissue. For these reasons, Graston Technique® therapy can provide relief for some individuals who suffer from migraine headaches.
